“Cooter's Place okay with me”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Cooter's Place is a country store with Dukes of Hazard merchandise in downtown Gatlinburg. I only was in the retail area of the facility. There were signed pictures and memorabilia from the original television show cast. My expectations were maybe too high being a childhood fan, but it was okay.

“Thank goodness for Groupon”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Parking was difficult as you had to use a garage. The place itself is very old, but has some character. The mini-golf is upstairs and would benefit from a facelift. The theme of the golf really did not take into consideration that the place itself is supposed to be after Dukes of Hazzard. Maybe put some pictures or trivia before each hole to remind the golfer they are in a Dukes of Hazzard establishment and not in someones upstairs playing golf. The go-karts are good and offer good value (thank you Groupon). The track was quite slick and a few adults were sliding and needed to be assisted to be turned around. I was proud that our children held their ground when being bumped and spun out a few teenage girls to put them in check. Overall good experience. There was someone from the show lingering around the lobby trying to sell photos, but those not familiar with the show should be provided a video or some other means to know who this guy is. An idea is to put that guy near the Cooter car and have him provide some facts on who he is.

“Awesome place for Duke's of Hazzard fans!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

I took my 12 year old son there 3 times during our vacation and he had a blast! Tons of memorabilia to look at as well as plenty of souvenirs. The indoor go-kart track was the highlight of our visit. Manager Brenner and go-kart track worker Coy (Claudie) were both awesome and went out of their way to make our visit wonderful! Had a great conversation with both of them. They also have an indoor putt putt course that we played twice. You can also get your picture taken sitting inside the General Lee wich my son loved. My son is a huge Duke's of Hazzard fan so we planned our vacation in Gatlinburg because of Cooter's Place and we were not disappointed. Thanks Brenner and Coy for a great time! Will definitely be back to see you guys!

“Good Ole Boy Adventure - Avoid the golf”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

Groupon hooked us up with a deal on go-carts, putt-putt and a photo. Let me start by saying that if you a fan of the show you will love the memorabilia. We started the adventure with putt-putt. It was in the upper floors of the building. The greens/course were in a sad state...it just felt odd. The kids liked it ok...and the adults just wished it would end. The music was not the kind of music we personally liked. You almost feel trapped in the small rooms

Next we did the go-carts. It is a simple oval slick track. One out of two kids liked it. The big kid adult...me...thought it was fun. Only real issue is overpowered carts in a small area and lots of fumes. The staff was nice. There was a decent wait...go early. I am not sure it is better than other tracks, but would be good on a rainy day.

Last we got out picture with the General Lee. I am not sure I would call it professional...but a guy took one picture and printed it on a 4X6. We didn't try to take any ourselves

Overall....ehhhhh ...it was ok. Not somewhere we will ever go back but it was something to do.
